JAMBEROO Superoos have ended Kiama Knights' South Coast Group 7 Rugby League campaign for 2013, scoring a scrappy, yet thrilling 20-14 victory on Saturday.
They will now face Milton-Ulladulla in the minor semi-final at Mollymook on Saturday.
In Sunday's major semi-final, Warilla-Lake South Gorillas will face off against minor premiers Gerringong at Michael Cronin Oval after downing Milton 22-16 at Cec Glenholmes Oval.
The Superoos led the elimination semi-final 14-10 at the 'oranges' and survived a nail-biting late charge from the Knights at Kevin Walsh Oval.
Jamberoo overcame the early arm-wrestle to score first in the 14th minute, when Josh Saunders gained a friendly bounce from a Daniel Brigham cross-field kick and possessed elusiveness and power for a 4-0 buffer.
The home side turned the ball over from the next set and this led to a glut of possession for the Knights.
Their persistence paid dividends when co-captain Marc Laird stormed through a gap wider than the Grand Canyon to cross for an easy try under the black dot.
Due to the sheer number of mistakes, both outfits struggled to establish much momentum.
Jamberoo regained the lead when hooker James Asquith threw a clever long ball for an unmarked Jarrod Schodde to touch down in the corner.
The Superoos went further ahead five minutes later when centre Tim Small seemingly created something from nothing, the three-quarter displaying speed, footwork and strength to nab a memorable solo four-pointer.
The home side were punished for a coach-killing mistake, Kiama pivot Kieran Poole cutting the deficit to four points with two minutes remaining of the first stanza.
The second half became another exercise in grappling for ascendancy, opportunities going begging at both ends.
The Knights' ability to keep the ball alive eventually led to winger Jay Delaney squaring the ledger, although the difficult conversion attempt was waved away.
The score-line had supporters scrambling to check the extra time regulations, but a looming golden point period was denied when the home team crossed with five minutes left.
Robbie Noble put Small into space and skipper Matt Coelho backed up to score under the posts.
The visitors peppered the Superoos' goal-line late, but they held on to record a memorable victory. Noble, Gavin Jarrett, Small and Saunders were standouts for Jamberoo, while Jack Alexander, Laird and Cameron Whittaker were the best for Kiama.
